Tifton-- A South Georgia non-profit organization is looking for a few good men to mentor a growing list of boys looking for guidance.

Big Brothers and Big Sisters of South Georgia pairs kids with adults in an effort to build one-to-one mentor relationships. The organization has plenty of women who want to be Big Sisters but there aren't enough men applying to be Big Brothers.

Some anxious little brothers have been on a waiting list for years. Soon that list will grow to about 30 young men waiting to be paired with a mentor.  

"Our agency is currently serving in Albany, Valdosta, Tifton, Douglas and Cordele and there are alot of young males in these areas looking for a good role model and a friend, someone to just spend time with them," says Tifton Executive Director Nancy Bryan.

Big Brothers and Big Sisters of South Georgia served over 500 children last year. To volunteer to be a Big Brother or Big Sister, contact Tameka Jenkins at 382-2077.
